Elcometer 260 UV Pinhole Flashlight

The Elcometer 260 UV Pinhole Flashlight is battery powered and housed in a rugged aluminium case providing  a quick, low cost method of testing coatings for pinholes.

Featuring a single Watt purple light emitting diode, the Elcometer 260 UV Pinhole Flashlight has a beam wavelength of 405nm (±5nm), which the human eye perceives as a purple light.

A UV reflective additive is applied to the base coat. The UV flashlight shines the purple light on the coating, the base coat fluoresces where it is not covered by any subsequent coating - identifying any pinholes in the top coat.

  • Low cost and easy to use: Use UV reflecting base coat and shine the purple light onto the surface. Any fluorescence identifies pinholes.
  • Rugged: Manufactured from aluminium alloy and Oring sealed to protect it from moisture and dust.
  • Portable and secure: Battery powered and features a click-on/push off button with lockout tailcap to prevent accidental activation during transport or storage.
